A sheep type I interferon receptor (oIFNAR1) cDNA was isolated from a λ-ZAP library using a reverse transcription (RT)-PCR product probe generated from oestrous endometrial RNA. The oIFNAR1 cDNA was 79, 66 and 95% homologous to human, murine and bovine IFNAR1 cDNAs respectively. The encoded receptor was a 560-amino acid transmembrane protein 80, 66 and 95% similar to human, murine and bovine IFNAR1 respectively. Northern blot analysis of endometrial mRNA revealed the presence of 6·5, 4·3 and 3·7 kb transcripts. Using semi-quantitative RT-PCR the oIFNAR1 mRNA was not found to be down-regulated after 72 h treatment with bovine recombinant IFN-αI in in vitro experiments with endometrial explants.
Journal of Molecular Endocrinology is committed to supporting researchers in demonstrating the impact of their articles published in the journal.
The two types of article metrics we measure are (i) more traditional full-text views and pdf downloads, and (ii) Altmetric data, which shows the wider impact of articles in a range of non-traditional sources, such as social media.
